Throttle Idle Problems

by Ernie
(Los angeles Ca)

How do I adjust the throttle on my 125 Yahmaha? When I let go of the gas it seems to turn off on me!? Can someone please help..


- Hi Ernie. You can adjust the idle by using a screwdriver to turn the idle control screw which is found on the side of the carburettor near the choke button. You should have a Keihin carby - you'll see the idle screw has a spring that compresses when you screw it in. Play around with this until your bike puuuurrrrrrs like a cat!
